Yes, square stitch is different and takes a bit longer but the end product is much stronger and less likely to break since you go through the beads so many times.

Ah, but square stitch is very different from peyote. With peyote, the beads are offset. With square stitch, they're stacked one directly on top of the other (in which case I would just weave it on a loom 'cause it's way faster and things come out more even).

I use no patterns. I either improvise a design if it's simple, or I use peyote grid paper. I just went looking for a picture of the bracelet I made, but I guess I never posted it to my site. But here's a bunch of rings I made a while back. When I bother to make a bracelet, it's basically the same thing, only bigger.

peyote grid paper? oooh cool.. i'm guessing I could google that and get me some to print out maybe?  thanks for the idea.  it'd be fun to design something myself....

I disagree on the square stitch being stronger. I think peyote and brickstitch structures are much stronger than square stitch where all the points of weakness are stacked on each other. I'd rather rely on the bead than the thread for strength.
